It takes time to become confident and careful behind the wheel. With the legal driving age just 16 years old – 15 ½ with adult supervision – many drivers are too young and inexperienced to safely control a motor vehicle. If a teenage driver causes your car accident and injuries, his or her parents may be responsible for your damages in Arizona.
Life-changing personal injury accidents can happen anywhere. The risk of a harmful accident dramatically increases, however, when a property contains a defect or hazard. A dangerous workplace in Arizona, for example, could pose many threats to your health and safety as a worker.
Pedestrians are Arizona’s most vulnerable road users. They have the most to lose in traffic accidents. In 2019, the Arizona Department of Transportation reported 1,842 pedestrian collisions throughout the state. Pedestrian accidents in Arizona caused 1,697 injuries (including 356 serious injuries) and 220 deaths.
The average motorcycle weighs about 400 pounds – significantly lighter than the typical 3,000- to 4,000-pound motor vehicle. The lighter weight and smaller size of a motorcycle make it more vulnerable to dangerous road conditions. While a standard passenger vehicle may be able to go over a pothole easily, for example, the same pothole could cause a catastrophic motorcycle accident.
Swimming, floating, boating and other water activities are fun for children in Arizona, especially during the state’s sweltering summers. It is imperative, however, for parents to supervise children during water activities and follow other safety rules. Accidental drowning is a highly prominent cause of child hospitalizations and deaths in Arizona.
